why creat content rest api not working? post api not working

I want to create content using confluence rest api.

I am running nodejs  to create page content in confluence REST API.


var myHeaders = new Headers();
myHeaders.append("Accept", "application/json");
myHeaders.append("Content-Type", "application/json");

var raw = JSON.stringify({"title":"new page","type":"page","space":{"key":"MYSPACEKEY"},"ancestors":[{"id":123456}],"body":{"storage":{"value":"<p>first page</p>","representation":"view"}}});

var requestOptions = {
method: 'POST',
headers: myHeaders,
body: raw

fetch("", requestOptions)
.then(response => response.text())
.then(result => console.log(result))
.catch(error => console.log('error', error));


That response 200 code, however I am getting the "get api result" not the "post response".

And it doesn't create new page. What is wrong?

The solution is that you are (and I was also) visiting http://confluence-url but you should instead specify https.

That cost me an embarassing amount of time to solve.

thanks, dominic. 

Did you find a solution to this problem?

I am having the exact same issue - POST requests to the create content end point don't create content and instead return the GET content response.
